Monica Kharbanda, MD, the clinic’s solo physician, is a double board-certified pediatrician through the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics. Dr. Kharbanda and her caring team of pediatric medical professionals provide detailed preventive care, including well-baby and well-child exams, sports physicals, school physicals, and expanded laboratory screenings. They regularly help children struggling with asthma, allergies, and acute illnesses, and they provide immunization updates.
Dr. Kharbanda completed a mini-fellowship with The REACH Institute, which is a unique program that helps physicians assess, identify, and treat pediatric mental health issues. As an advocate for comprehensive pediatric care, Dr. Kharbanda has focused on helping the pediatric population get mental health screenings and begin medical intervention early on.
Parents can expect to receive detailed information about their child’s health and any treatments their child may need. The team at Franconia Pediatrics wants families to have the education they need to stay involved in the decision-making process. Dr. Kharbanda is fluent in English and Hindi and enjoys caring for patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. New patients are always welcome at Franconia Pediatrics.
